Our Riverfront is one of your greatest assets. The completion of the new waste treatment facility will give the City of Savanna the opportunity to redevelop large portions of our Riverfront. I envision a waterfront restaurant, bike rentals for the Trail, kayak rentals and more. This will bring much needed tax dollars as well as income for the Park District and City of Savanna. This will also give greater access to residents of Savanna and the surrounding areas as well as help attract new residents.
With the completion of the new bridge, the next mayor will be instrumental with redeveloping Marquette Park. We should take advantage of this time and make the most of it. I will work with community leaders, clubs, organizations and the park district to add updated seating, floral gardens within the park and a veterans memorial park to make it more of destination everyone can spend their day enjoying.
